Cleveland or bust!
MHC bus tour heads North in 2010

The 2010 MHC Bus Tour promises to be one of the best ever! We will be heading North to Cleveland Ohio to see a number of haunts each offering a different style and venue of haunting. Plan on joining us for this jam-packed two day bus tour on June 2nd and 3rd, 2010. More details coming soon!!

Midwest Haunters Convention
The Midwest Haunters Convention is for Haunted Attraction Producers, Actors, Artists and Home Haunters. Our goal is to provide educational seminars and workshops with experienced presenters, a 75+ vendor tradeshow with the latest in haunt offerings, and a place to network with others in the industry during our unique social activities. We’ll offer 1st class haunted attraction bus tours, costume parties and contests (the Bloody Mary Monster Makeup Wars competition, Ms Midwest Scary Pageant & the IAHA Scariest Character Contest). “Haunters” are always welcome here!

I can't wait Barry! You and the rest of the MHC team are to be commended for putting together such a professional convention while maintaining an atmosphere that is supportive of the passion we all share! MHC is great for so many reasons, relaxed and comfortable networking, great learning opportunities, outstanding vendors with good vendor face time, incredibly fun events, and the list goes on and on! Like I said after the last MHC, I wish I hadn't waited so long to attend and you guys rock for the insane amount of time and finances you invest to make MHC a reality! Barry, Kathy, Kelly and Neena, the haunt blood runs thick in your veins and it is greatly appreciated!:D

Hope to have a booth for the show in 2010... I found the registrations update but no registration info on the site. ( Barry ) Did I miss it ?? I know its 450.00 a 10x10 booth and I think 20% off if reserved by Dec 22 ?? but dont see where you can register and send payment....

( I ADMIT IT....lol.... I AM BLIND TOO )

No, you are not blind. LOL I have not had a chance to upload the vendor packet to the website. I have emailed it to you.

If anyone else would like a vendor packet please send me an email to Barry@midwesthaunters.com.

And Thanks to all of you for the great comments! That is the real reason we do the show :D

i'm looking forward to it as well! Had a blast at the last few & am looking forward to seeing what the bus tour line up will be..
Is there a code for reserving hotel rooms yet? Or do you have to just call & let them know you are with the con?

I know this much.... wife and I wanted to stay at "THE LOFTS" thought it would be different... ( not our thing ) not bad.... but its back to the Hyatt for us... we were more comfortable there !!

Barry ~ will there be a garage type sale at the end of the convention
( i.e. Sunday ? ) Im always in favor of a sale... it helps clean stuff out and customers get great deals

I know other conventions have had them I asked about one last year at MHC but I guess it didnt happen.

Banshee - I will have the Hyatt set up a registration page ASAP and post it to the website. Until then you can call the local number and register that way.

Brian - no, we do not do a garage sale. However, because of the timing of our show, and our cash-and-carry reputation, many vendors use MHC as a way to blow out inventory. The concept of a garage sale has positives and negatives. A lot of vendors do not like them because people put off buying in hopes of scoring a better deal at the end of the show.

I'm looking forward to the 2010 show too. I'm especially excited for another 2 day pre-show tour.

I've been on the pre-tour trips for the past 2 years and not only do you see some great haunts with dedicated staff running a show in June, but you get to hang out with a ton of other haunters, designers, and owners the whole time. Fun times! Every other industry you would drop a couple hundred on that oppertunity for 45 min at a lunch.
